Following the running of the race, the Stewards sounded the inquiry sign and considered an objection lodged by jockey Mansour, the rider of Ravatak, being declared 2nd, against Melson, being declared the winner, alleging interference in the final straight. After taking evidence from both riders and trainers, it was established that from leaving the 150 metres Melson commenced to shift out under pressure with Ravatak, which was improving on its outside, being taken out onto Mojo G and eventually became cramped for room and having to be eased for a couple of strides and taken in to continue going forward. The Stewards, taking into consideration the beaten margin of 0.65 length, together with the degree of interference, decided to uphold the objection, the placings being altered to read: 1st Ravatak; 2nd: Melson; 3rd: Kings Advisor; 4th Halabaloo. At an inquiry into this incident, it was established that near the 100 metres, when in front, Melson proved very green and shifted out sharply despite jockey David’s effort to straighten it and changing his whip to his left hand. As such, being given that the race had been taken away from jockey David and taking into account that Melson contributed largely to the incident, the Stewards decided not to proceed with the inquiry.

No Prisoners half-reared and was slow out. Ravatak and Don’t Say Don’t jumped awkwardly. Double Dash was slow to begin. Passing the 1365 metres Melson became awkward on the heels of Isipho and, when being steadied, shifted out, carrying Ravatak, which was over-racing, out onto the heels of Halabaloo, which was being taken in to secure a position closer to the rails. Ravatak then had to be steadied to avoid the heels of Halabaloo. Approaching the 1300 metres Kings Advisor improved into a tight tap on the inside of Brave Leader and in doing so crowded Halabaloo, which had to be checked and was carried in onto Ravatak, which in turn had to be checked. At an inquiry into this incident, jockey Sooful (Kings Advisor) pleaded guilty to a charge under MTC Rule 160 A (e) for careless riding and was suspended from riding in races for one Mauritian race meeting. Jockey Hoolash (Halabaloo) was shown the video replays of the home straight and severely reprimanded under MTC Rule 160 A (g) for using his whip in an improper manner.

Routine urine specimen was taken for analysis from No Prisoners prior to the race and urine and blood specimens from Ravatak after the race.

Count Emmanuale was slow to begin. Win A Million jumped awkwardly and, after being urged forward, failed to muster speed. From its wide draw Artful Prince was taken across to race behind runners. Step To Fame came off the crossing at the 800 metres awkwardly. Approaching the 700 metres Artful Prince had to be eased when awkward close to the heels of Don’t Tell Mama. Jockey Ghunowa (Step To Fame) was shown the video replays of the home straight and severely reprimanded under MTC Rule 160 A (g) for using his whip in an excessive manner.

The Club’s Veterinary Surgeon reported that Al Mahara suffered a bleeding attack and that an endoscopic examination of Adi Star, which was coughing after the race, revealed blood in its trachea.

Routine urine and blood specimens were taken for analysis from Mount Hillaby after the race.

Following the running of the race, the Stewards sounded the inquiry sign and considered two objections lodged by jockey Ghunowa, the rider of Racing For Fun, being declared 3rd, against Gharbee and Valerin, the 1st and 2nd places respectively, alleging interference rounding the home turn. It was established that leaving the 250 metres Racing For Fun was taken out to improve on the outside of Valerin, carrying Blaze Of Noon onto the heels of Gharbee, which was shifting in under pressure with Blaze Of Noon having to be eased to avoid the heels of Gharbee. Following this, Gharbee continued to shift in, closing the gap between itself and Valerin before Racing For Fun had secured the run in between these two horses, with Racing For Fun then being taken in and becoming awkward on the heels of Valerin, which was shifting in under pressure. The Stewards, being of the opinion that Racing For Fun was not travelling well enough to secure the run between Gharbee and Valerin, decided to dismiss the objection with respect to Gharbee. After having viewed the films, jockey Ghunowa realised that his objection against Valerin had no substance, as such he asked to withdraw the objection. However, the Stewards, by virtue of Rule 176, imposed a fine of Rs.10,000 on jockey Ghunowa for having lodged a frivolous objection.

Emerald Approach was slow out, losing considerable ground and from the 600 metres commenced to give ground, finishing tailed off. A subsequent veterinary examination of this gelding revealed that Emerald Approach was severely lame on the off hind leg. The Stewards, considering that the performance of Emerald Approach was unsatisfactory, decided to ban this gelding from racing indefinitely. Racing For Fun over-raced in the middle stages and leaving the 1000 metres was steadied when awkward close to the heels of Parker. Gharbee raced wide from approaching the 500 metres. At an inquiry into an incident between Racing For Fun and Blaze Of Noon, it was established that near the 250 metres Racing For Fun, which was improving from behind Valerin, became awkward on its heels and was taken out to continue going forward and, in doing so, carried Blaze Of Noon, which was racing on its outside, outwards with the latter becoming awkward onto the heels of Gharbee, which was shifting in slightly under pressure and having to be momentarily steadied. After consideration, the Stewards decided not to proceed further, however told jockey Ghunowa that he is expected to exercise care at all times when riding in races.

Routine urine and blood specimens were taken for analysis from Gharbee after the race.

Traianius and Kapiti Coast were slow to begin. Karraar blundered at the start. Passing the 1300 metres Karraar shifted out when close to the running rails, bumping Domani on its outside. Passing the 450 metres Kapiti Coast was taken out from behind Corker Stalker, which had commenced to give ground. Leaving the 300 metres Colour Of Courage shifted out badly when being ridden with the whip and raced wide rounding the home turn. Jockey Sola (Colour Of Courage) pleaded guilty to a charge under MTC Rule 160 A (e) for riding in an incompetent manner in that he used his whip in his right hand on the home turn, causing the latter to shift out exaggeratedly and was issued with a severe warning. The Club’s Veterinary Surgeon reported that Traianius was lame on the off hind leg.

Routine urine and blood specimens were taken for analysis from Karraar after the race.

Bastille Day and Skippyjon Jones were slow to begin. Ashanti Gold hesitated at the start and raced wide throughout. Approaching the 100 metres Roman Manner shifted out under pressure, resulting in Francois Bernardus, which was following, having to be taken to its inside to continue going forward. When shifting out Roman Manner slightly inconvenienced Recall To Life. Jockey Emamdee (Roman Manner) was shown the video replays of the home straight, reprimanded under Rule 160 A (d) and told to straighten his mounts when they shift ground. An inquiry was held into the handling of Ashanti Gold. Assistant Trainer S. Gujadhur explained that he instructed jockey Mansour to jump and endeavour to lead if possible. Jockey Mansour confirmed these instructions and explained that after jumping awkwardly and shifting out, when asked for an effort, Ashanti Gold was sluggish and did not muster speed, seeing that Roman Manner had secured the lead and that he could not have been able to race close to the lead, he then elected to secure a position in mid-field one off the rails as this gelding has run well coming from off the pace in the past. However, Skippyjon Jones improved on its inside, with him being caught wide. He added that from approaching the 1000 metres, when the pace slackened he endeavoured to improve on the outside of Recall To Life, however the latter improved with him, as such he decided to settle his mount on the outside as in his opinion it would have been detrimental to the chances of his mount for him to insist for the lead. After consideration, the Stewards decided not to proceed further other than to tell jockey Mansour that he should ride all his mounts so as to leave no room for query.

Routine urine and blood specimens were taken for analysis from Roman Manner after the race.

Communiqué des commissaires (en version originale)

When cantering to the start Canadian Club dislodged jockey Bhundoo and ran part of the course. The gelding was examined by the Club’s Veterinary Surgeon and found unfit to race. Acting on veterinary advice, the Stewards ordered the withdrawal of Canadian Club at 4 p.m. In view of this withdrawal, all bets on Canadian Club were ordered to be refunded and no deductions were effected on winning bets, the average price of Canadian Club being 44-1 at time of withdrawal.

The start was delayed when Brazo proved difficult to load. Trainer Ramdin was told that the performance of Brazo at the start was unsatisfactory. As such, the gelding will need to pass a barrier test to the satisfaction of the Stewards before being allowed to race again.

Brazo, which was fractious in its gate, jumped awkwardly, throwing its head. Starspangledbanner shifted out on jumping, crowding Mucajai onto Constellation with the latter becoming inconvenienced over a short distance. From its wide draw Right To Tango was taken across to race behind runners. When questioned with regard to the poor performance of Brazo, jockey

Neisius explained that, in his opinion, the fact that the start being delayed by quite a long period, resulted in Brazo becoming increasingly uptight behind the stalls, sweating up profusely and proving difficult to load. He stated that all these factors had affected its performance.

Routine urine specimen was taken for analysis from Mucajai prior to the race and urine and blood specimens from Right To Tango after the race.
